I know this topic comes up time and again but I saw one this AM that was absolutely black, it was also absolutely a coyote.

There are often claims made by the locals about seeing black coyotes and I shot one last winter that I temporarily would have sworn was black . She came in with the sun behind her on fresh snow. After I had her on the ground it was obvious that she was not black, though extremely dark.

The one this AM was spotted crossing a blacktop road - anything that appears black with that background has got to be very black.

I just thought it was interesting being as I've seen a fair number of coyotes in my life and never saw one that came any where near being black until last winter.

The one this AM had better watch his P's and Q's, he was only a couple of miles from my house crossing out of a scout reservation (no hunting) on to ground that I can hunt.
